Last week, as I’m sure you know, a cyclone devastated Myanmar and left thousands (people and animals) dead, injured, and/or in dire need of assistance. In situations like this, most international rescue organizations focus on the human aspects of the suffering, but fortunately, there are other organizations devoted solely to helping animals that are facing illness, starvation and death. Needless to say, major disasters such as the Myanmar cyclone (and the earthquake in China) put a tremendous drain on the resources of animal rights and rescue organizations, so if you can, you might want to consider a donation to one or more of them.
Here are links to three organizations that are directly involved in easing the suffering of our animal friends in Myanmar:
World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA)
International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW)
Humane Society of the United States (HSUS)
